80 Thai workers left Israel during Gaza op

Eighty Thai workers left Israel during Operation Protective Edge and returned to Thailand because of the conflict, inflicting damage on the Israeli agriculture sector, a lawyer representing Israeli farmers says in a statement.

Attorney Hagit Weinstock says that even those foreign workers who remained spent little time in the fields, particularly after the death of a Thai laborer in a mortar attack, and others moved north away from the Gaza Strip. She says the damage caused to the market as a result are considerable.
